Today, I’m Tired.

Day 6.

I got about a total of 5 hours of sleep last night. Had it been all in a row I’d probably not be writing about it.

Baby J had an epic nap yesterday. He fell asleep at 4:30pm and woke up at 10:30pm. I would have loved to have been sleeping right along with him but that is just so unrealistic. My house is in a constant state of disaster and I am trying to make a dent in it. I managed to clean out the main floor closet and my desk. Victory!!

So yeah, I went to “bed” (actually, the couch in the basement) at 11pm after my nightly ritual of checking Twitter and FB. The baby woke up at 1:30am. Feed, burp, swaddle, back to sleep. He was up again at 3:00am. Feed, burp, swaddle, back to sleep. Then up again at 4:30am. Feed, burp, diaper change, clothing change, swaddle, back to sleep. Up again at 6am … You get the drift?


I put the cereal box in the fridge this morning. I can’t imagine having to go back to work right now. Maternity leave rocks!!!

Where’s my bed?

  1. I hear ya! I’m on day 6 and we have a great night followed by a terrible one, rinse and repeat. FINALLY starting to get the hang of this breastfeeding thing though so we’re having some small wins on that front, and on the whole she is sleeping quite well. I still feel like a bit of a mess though. Getting a shower and lunch every day is a blessing.

    • Congratulations!!!

      The first six weeks are brutal. It does get better. Despite this being my third go at it, I have to constantly remind myself of it. One day in the not-too-disrant future you will look back and wonder where the time went.
